Lucas Vazquez, a Real Madrid midfielder, has rejected to move to Atletico in the summer when he would become a free agent. The 29-year-old midfielder was contacted by the Rojiblancos who offered him a deal but Vazquez has not even explored the option, thanking Atletico for their interest.
The Spaniard loves Real Madrid so much that he was not ready for a move to the neighboring club. Vazquez does not see himself in an Atletico shirt because he has been with Real Madrid for many years, writes As.
Real Madrid originally offered Vazquez a salary of €3.5m a year, but that option did not suit the player. Thus the club later increased the offer to €5m a year. The footballer agreed and is now close to agreeing to a new three-year contract with the club.
The midfielder will leave for AC Milan if there are difficulties in negotiations with Real Madrid. The Italian club has made him the most generous offer and is persistently keen to cooperate. The player would be enthusiastic to kick a leg at Italy, but his aim is to stay at Real Madrid even if he makes less than his expectations.
It is noted that in the signing of Vazquez’s new contract the future of Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos could play an important role. The players are linked with a close relationship and should Madrid sign a new contract with the 34-year-old defender, Vazquez will definitely remain at the club. This season Vazquez has scored 2 goals providing 5 assists in 24 La Liga games.
Real Madrid is all set to visit Stamford Bridge for their Champions League semi-finals return leg against Chelsea after the Los Bancos team drew 1-1 with The Blues in the first leg. The outcome would lead the winner to Istanbul for the most-awaited Finals.
